355ml Bottle from the Brewdog Online Shop:
Bright looking amber with a 2.5cm head that is creamy & white, holding well with plenty of lacing sticking to the sides of the glass.

Fruity with strong pine resin coming through along with some tropical fruits that includes some grapefruit, orange & a little citrus with some caramel as well & to a lesser extent some floral notes.

Bitter & hoppy with the grapefruit & citrus. There is caramel & citrus. Some malts come through as well with some nice hops throughout.

Smooth & bitter with a medium bodied & similar carbonation. There is a great balance to this one with touches of sweetness coming through in places & the finish is a crisp and slightly dry.

Very American IPA in style with plenty of bitterness & tropical fruit notes but one of the best things about this one was how well it managed to hide the alcohol content of the beer because you really couldn't tell this one was an 8% abv. beer; it was so easy to drink.

A: The beer is hazy caramel amber in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high dense off white head that died down but left a short head covering the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of grapefruit and tropical fruit hops and caramel malts are present in the nose. The tropical fruits seem to become stronger as the beer warms up and passionfruit seems to stand out in particular.
T: Just like the smell, the taste has flavors of grapefruit and passionfruit from the Galaxy hops, but there are also strong notes of underlying caramel malts. The hops contribute a light amount of hop bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. Only a little crispness is noticeable, and this is similar to what you would get from drinking grapefruit juice.
O: This IPA isn't a hop bomb, but is instead a beer that has a good balance between the malts and hops.
